How It Works

Pay one lower-cost solar energy bill that replaces your old utility bill.

Receive one combined bill for solar and utility power

Your traditional utility bill will be replaced by your new Ivy Solar Bill that combines your costs for utility and solar power into one bill. Your Ivy solar bill will show what you would have paid the utility without solar so you can see what you are saving, as well as providing insights to help you maximize your solar usage.

Pay through your rent ledger

Make one convenient monthly payment through your community’s rent ledger when you pay your rent.

Your solar benefits

Your community's solar system generates monthly energy savings. Ivy Energy tracks these savings and distributes a portion to residents. You'll receive a monthly Ivy Solar Bill, calculated using local utility rates minus your share of savings, ensuring you always pay less with solar!

Reduce your carbon footprint

By replacing some of your utility power with solar energy you will reduce your carbon footprint and support a cleaner, healthier planet.
Here’s What To Expect On Your Ivy Solar Bill

Your solar energy usage

Your solar energy bill is broken down by 3 categories of energy: Live Solar, Solar Credits, and Grid Usage. You will be able to see the amount of energy you produced when solar was available and the extra energy required that was not offset by Live Solar or Solar Credits.

Environmental impact

See how you are positively impacting the environment by using solar energy and making sustainable choices in your daily energy usage. This section of your bill will show you how much carbon dioxide (CO2) you've offset by using solar energy instead of traditional fossil fuels. It will also display other important environmental metrics such as the equivalent number of trees planted, cars taken off the road, and more.

Price comparison

Easily compare side-by-side what you would have paid the utility without solar. Your solar savings are applied based on a percentage discount off the energy virtually allocated from the solar system to you, factoring in your individual usage, time-of-use pricing, and the community's real-time solar availability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about the program and billing.
After I sign the lease addendum, what should I expect next?
After signing the lease addendum, keep an eye out for a welcome email from us. This email will confirm your enrollment in the solar program and provide you with everything you need to know to start enjoying the benefits of solar energy.
Once I am actively on the solar program, do I need to pay the utility company for electricity?
Once fully transitioned on the solar program, you will no longer receive an electric utility bill and will instead receive a lower cost Ivy Solar Energy Bill which will include both your solar and leftover electric utility cost charges. However, it’s important to note that even while on the solar program, your unit’s normal electric utility service will remain active and maintained by your landlord.
How do I know if I am saving money?
Ivy Energy uses public utility rates to determine what you would have paid without solar. Utility rates are required to be posted publicly and Ivy keeps up to date with all effective utility rate schedules. According to the utility rate and rate criteria’s listed on your solar energy bill you can expect your calculated gross bill energy cost (what you would have paid without solar) to be within 99% accuracy. Your monthly portion of available solar savings is then applied to your bill providing you a reduced cost Ivy Solar Energy Bill. Please visit the utility company’s website to see available rate schedules in more detail.
Who do I pay my solar energy bill to?
Typically, your solar energy bill will be paid to the same entity to whom you pay your rent, unless stated otherwise in your solar billing statement or lease agreement. This entity is usually your property management company or landlord.
If my utility company provides me both electric service and gas service will I still receive a utility gas bill once participating in Ivy’s solar program?
No. Upon solar activation, gas service ownership will be transferred to your landlord, and your unit's gas charges will be passed to you as a 1:1 utility cost line item on your rent ledger.
Who do I contact if I have questions about my Ivy account?
You can contact our Ivy support team if you have questions about your Ivy account, solar billing, account information, or other general questions. You can reach us by phone or submit a ticket at our support portal:
Phone: (858)326-3655
What if I'm on a special rate program like CARE, FERA, or Medical Baseline?
If you're on a special rate program we want to ensure your solar bill is calculated with the correct rates for you. You can reach us by phone or submit a ticket at our support portal:
Phone: (858)326-3655
If the solar panels are not producing energy am I without power?
When your community's solar system is not producing power you will continue to receive energy directly from the utility company as normal. Electric utility cost is included in your solar energy bill.
Can I change the utility rate schedule that my solar energy bill references?
You may request that the rate schedule referenced in your solar energy bill be changed to any qualified NEM (Net Energy Metering) rate schedule available from the utility as long as it is determined that the electrical service for your unit meets the utility company's criteria for that rate schedule. Chat to our friendly team to find a solution that works for you.
What is your cancellation policy?
Benefiting from solar power is your choice and you have the right to cancel if you no longer wish to receive the benefits of solar. Refer to your lease agreement for specific details.
Am I responsible to buy and take care of the solar panels?
No, the solar panels are owned by your property owner. All system maintenance and operations are your landlord's responsibility and the solar benefits are simply being shared with you and other participating residents in your community.
